MARTINSRIED/MUNICH, Germany & MAHWAH, N.J., Dec. 11 -- ADVA Optical Networking announced it has demonstrated a live network showcase as part of Deutsche Telekom's Global Seamless Network (GSN) Project in Darmstadt and Berlin, Germany.
The GSN Project is a result of research by Deutsche Telekom in next-generation network technologies and applications and the selection of several participating vendors, including ADVA Optical Networking and Extreme Networks. The effort is part of the carrier's goal to develop a worldwide telecommunications network managed by a single network management platform.
ADVA and Extreme Networks showcased next-generation metro Ethernet applications based on ADVA's carrier-class fiber service platform (FSP) 3000 metro infrastructure solution and Extreme Networks' Summit 7i and Summit 48i Ethernet switches. ADVA's FSP 3000 systems are deployed in a three-node ring configuration together with a remote FSP 3000 Slimline network element, which is connected to the ring through an automatically switched transport network (ASTN). The demonstration highlights Gigabit Ethernet data, storage, voice and video traffic being managed by ADVA's FSP infrastructure and network management platform.
The GSN Project demonstration enables Deutsche Telekom to explore new technologies and services in metro Ethernet networks and ASTNs, including bandwidth-on-demand, dynamic and flexible Ethernet services and automatic network configuration. The GSN Project will be shown to various internal divisions at Deutsche Telekom and to customers such as large enterprises and specialized service providers.
